Shillings 11 billion will jointly be financed by Nansana rotary club, the community

The Nansana Rotary Club President, Geoffrey Hairora, said
the health center IV will comprise among others two operation theatres, a 20
bed children’s ward, a 40-bed maternity ward, a 20-bed male ward, 20-bed female
ward and two modern laboratories.
He says the Nansana Rotary club was prompted to help construct
the health by the big number of people who usually turn up whenever they
organize medical camps.
// “Cue in: ate tumaze ebbanga nga ..
Cue out: .. sekinnoomu nga mmwe,” //
Regina Bakitte Nalongo, the mayor of Nansana Municipality, says that this is an
opportunity to improve health service delivery to the people of the municipality,
who have all along been depending on the health centers II, which has since been
phased out by the government.
Bakitte says that in addition to lack of specialized health
workers like opticians and dentists among others, a patient that shows up for services
like minor surgery at Nakkuule health center II would either have to travel to
Kampala or Bombo military hospital, which are far away.
//“Cue in: amalwaliro getubadde tulina ..
Cue out: .. ebintu ng’ebyo,” //
She commended Nansana rotary club for the routine medical camps from, which Rotarians
developed the idea of elevating Nakkuule health center II to a health center
In his message read for him by Nsibirwa, the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga
expressed concern over many newly built health facilities, which lack
necessities like equipment, medical personnel and drugs.
He has challenged the Rotary club of Nansana to ensure that they don’t not only
construct a modern facility but also equip it with all the necessities.
